Royal Canin Breed Nutrition

Tailor made health nutrition

In 2002 Royal Canin became the first pet food company to create  a ‘nutritional answer’ for a specific breed; the much-loved Yorkshire Terrier. Since then they have created special diets for many other breeds of pedigree cats and dogs. Every aspect of the feed, from kibble shape to the balance of nutrients, is carefully formulated to simultaneously enhance the unique characteristics of pedigree breeds while also addressing breed specific health problems.

Read on to find out how a Royal Canin breed diet can help your pedigree pet get the best out of life!

Royal Canin Maine Coon 31

Owning a Maine Coon is like having your very own wild cat with their ‘lynx tip’ ears and glorious lion-like neck ruff! These enormous felines are prone to joint and muscle problems as a result of their large skeletal frame. Another common and often serious problem among Maine Coons is a tendency to develop Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (thickening of the heart muscle).

Maine Coon 31 contains optimally balanced minerals and vitamins which will help support and maintain a healthy heart. The Maine Coons big frame is supported by the inclusion of glucosamine and chondroitin, which protect joint tissue and keep everything working smoothly. The luscious locks of the Maine Coon are given a boost by fatty acids, linoleic and amino acids which enhance the natural beauty and colour of the coat.  The kibble is larger than regular cat food making it perfect for the Maine Coon’s big jaws.



Royal Canin British Shorthair 34

The striking British Shorthair is now the number one cat breed in the UK and it’s  not surprising that they’ve won so many hearts with their teddy bear charm and quiet poise. British Shorthairs are generously proportioned, cobby even, and this larger body puts added pressure on muscles and joints. Like the Maine Coon, British Shorthairs are also prone to cardiac problems.

British Shorthair 34 kibble takes into account the shape of the Shorthair’s compact jaw; its curved edge is easy to pick up and the size and texture help to maintain good tooth and gum health.  Optimally balanced levels of taurine, L-carnitine, EPA/DHA and antioxidants support the function of the cardiac muscle, keeping your cat’s heart healthy so he can live a long and happy life.


Tailor made diets are also available for Siamese and Persian cats in our Royal Canin shop.



Royal Canin Cocker 25

The loveable Cocker Spaniel with his silky coat and adorable, floppy ears was bred to retrieve Woodcock and like all gun dog breeds, he tends to be rather greedy! Cockers are blessed with long life spans but this introduces potential risks of cardiac problems and cataracts in later years.

Royal Canin Cocker 25 is designed to bring out the coat’s natural beauty with borage oil and biotin. It also includes anti-oxidants to support vision into old age and taurine to support optimal function of the cardiac muscle. Cocker 25 contains an appropriate fat content to help your dog stay trim as well as L-Carnitine which increases his ability to burn fat.



Royal Canin Labrador Retriever 38

The ever popular Lab is well known for his insatiable appetite and boundless energy.  His tendency to gobble down anything and everything can lead to weight gain and in turn, added pressure on joints.  Labs love the water and have a specially adapted waterproof coat.

Labrador Retriever 38 has a reduced fat content to help you keep your lab at his ideal weight.  He won’t feel empty though as the chunky kibble with added barley and psyllium is designed to leave him full up and satisfied.  Glucosamine and chondroitin are included to make sure joints stay in top condition well into old age and the lab’s unique coat will benefit from added vitamins and amino acids which also help to maintain the barrier role of the skin.

  6. Excellent blog! I actually love how it is easy on my eyes and also the details are well written. I am wondering how I can be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!

  7. I believe felines make the best pets in general. You don’t need to maintain them nearly as much as canines by grooming them as well as providing them with a bath. Even though you may relinquish slumber given that they enjoy being let outdoors at night usually.
